Enjoy a sweet and delicious watermelon
under the clear blue summer sky.
If one could freely and easily carry a heavy,
round watermelon in a bag...
This is the thought that went through the mind of our craftsman,
Mr. Kadoi, and inspired him to begin
working on a special leather bag designed to hold a watermelon.
REINFORCED BASE DESIGN
Crafted using a technique similar to that employed for the Diario series, the base of this bag was created by sewing together multiple overlapping pieces of leather. If the bag was twisted or pulled during this process, the leather might become contorted or deformed. This is why the craftsman needed to carefully control the amount of force applied when crafting the bag while imagining the appearance of the finished product.
THE CRAFTSMAN WHO CREATED THIS BAG
At the age of 28, Mr. Kadoi quit his job as a chef in favor of a new career path as a leather bag craftsman. He is currently the leader of a team of craftsmen responsible for crafting leather bags for adults at our Nishiarai Atelier in Japan.
